so the school that i go to is cracking down on copyright material because they say its takeing up tooo much space on the network so today one of the computer people came up to me and told me that i was breaking the law because i had songs that were "copyright" on my login so all of the music on my login was from archive and i told her she was wrong cause it was recorded live and she mostly told me to get rid of it. i said i wasent going to because it wasent illegal so can someone help me prove her wrong cause i know im right and shes not

thanks

andy

What would the difference be for you between keeping copies locally on your network account at school and listening to the copies on the archive? The whole point of archive.org is that works in the archive are stored for the long term. If 'your' songs all came from archive.org, you aren't losing anything by removing them from the network. You'll still be able to get them again.

Regardless of the copyright debate: The space on the school network belongs to the school and not to you. They WILL delete all your files eventually (think about this in terms of years.) You should be happy they are giving you the chance to go through your own stuff and clean it up.
